This hotel is built in the Hunter Valley and like so many properties in that part of the world is overpriced for what it offers. The prices seem to to escalate when there are events being held in the area. We were attending a wedding and this was where most guests were staying as it was close to the reception venue. The room was pleasant enough and was like any other Crowne Plaza (which I guess is comforting). The main building is in a kind of u shape, which meant sound does tend to travel. This meant we couldn't sleep with the balcony door open as the noise from other people sitting on their balcony was loud - and this continued well into the early hours of the morning. Having said that the room was air conditioned which we had to leave on all night. The other thing to consider is that the parking is a long way from the room. Like so many hotels in this country wi fi was not free but available at exorbitant rates - when will Australia catch up with the rest of the world on this and offer free wi fi.
